But you are not a baby boomer that has worked for 50 years, without spending a single day on un-employment, saving for and looking forward to the "golden years" of relaxing and enjoying what you put together.

Then to see that savings devalued to about half in four years, due to bank bailouts and cash for clunkers programs and all that bullshit. Free enterprise says that failing businesses should fail. Pick up the pieces and move on.

I didn't live in a house that was beyond my means, or drive a clunker, but I had to pay for those ****ers that did. Yes, I am pissed off.

Then you have looming devastation that is going to happen to medicare in six months when it is raped to pay for Obamacare. Obama and his cronies know there at too many of us that will be aging and needing this care, and the current health care practices of the "greatest generation" can not be sustained. So we are going to get shorted, pain pills and end of life consulting.

Our generation is paying more into SS than it will ever receive and our children will have it even worse due to the huge debt.

Yeah, I am a pissed off old white man.
I don't understand how you could be so convinced that the problems you describe are solely attributable to the president, or even the Democratic party. Or why you think it would have been so much better, had Romney been elected.

Hell, Romney's Bain was in the business of buying failing businesses, as opposed to letting them fail. Bain would buy them, and hack the company to pieces, and absorb them into a bigger conglomerate corporation. Not to mention that Romney was once all over universal health care. He's not exactly the opposite of Obama in that regard.

I'm just not seeing how things drastically change by Romney being elected. Things are shitty, and Obama failed on many things. But never at any time was I convinced that Romney would have been anything other than another shitty politician maintaining status quo. The system wouldn't allow it.
